Garmin International and Boeing’s Jeppesen now offer new wireless data transfer capabilities for Jeppesen terminal charts, Jeppesen said. Charts can now be transferred wirelessly from iOS-based app, Garmin Pilot, to some Garmin avionics.
“The ability to provide wireless data updates streamlines the flight preparation process and allows pilots to take the skies more quickly,” said Scott Reagan, director of Jeppesen OEM Client Management. “This wireless data transfer capability illustrates how Garmin and Jeppesen work together to simplify the delivery of essential flight data to private pilots flying with Garmin avionics and Garmin Pilot.”
The Garmin GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigator and the Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck with Flight Stream 510 have the transfer capability. Flight Stream 510’s multimedia card (MMC) includes Database Concierge, which is what transfers Jeppesen database updates from the app.
